Product Description


This beautifully illustrated book for children ages five years old and up, tells the story of a great saint, who devoted her life to God, and to others.

Amongst the slums of Calcutta, Mother Teresa offered a comforting smile, consoling arms, soothing hands, a kind look that gave dignity, tears of compassion, and the light of Jesus in the darkness of great poverty. She saw God in the poorest of the poor; she cherished them and became a mother to all. She is a powerful witness that “whatever we do for one of the least of our brothers, we do for Jesus” (cf. Matthew 25:40)

Mother Teresa of Calcutta founded an order of sisters to work with her to serve the poorest of the poor, the Missionaries of Charity. When she died in 1997 at the age of eighty-seven, the government of India honored her with a state funeral. A million people lined the streets that day to honor their beloved saint. Her tomb swiftly became a place of prayer for people of all faiths, rich and poor alike.

Mother Teresa was canonized a Saint by Pope Francis in September 2016.
